Caught in the Villain’s Web, Melodrama Show

Note: Champers and supper served 45 minutes prior to show starting. 

The Caught in the Villain’s Web Champers Supper Show is a great opportunity for the audience to unwind with theatre-restauraunt style entertainment. You can enjoy a scrumptious light finger food supper, a fun show and let your hair down. Why not get a group together for a great night!

Caught in the Villain’s Web is a traditional melodrama with plenty of opportunity for audience participation. You are invited and encouraged to boo the villain, cheer the hero and sigh for the heroine.

Felicity Fair, down trodden heroine, is a nurse sent to the Larkfield mansion to attend a hard hearted society matron who is pretending to be ill to force her son, Malvern, to marry the scheming Nella Hargrave. Malvern takes one look at Felicity and falls in love.

When Malvern proposes he is unaware that villain Cyril Bothingwell is behind a screen listening. Felicity sadly informs Malvern that she can never marry. Five years ago she was in a train wreck and cannot remember a thing that happened prior to the wreck – she doesn’t even know her real name.

Needless to say – Cryil’s nefarious schemes are thwarted to the delight of all.
